Guest Post - 10 ways to wear a braid!

Hi! I'm Annelise and I'm the quirky girl who blogs over at Bye Bye Beehive.

I'm on a 365-day journey where I'm hoping to grow long, beautiful hair. You know, that hair. That ultra-long, spiral curled, perfectly highlighted stuff that the movie stars wear around town. I'm going to have it. Someday. But until that day comes, I'll just be blogging along, wandering around, and trying out some fun new hairstyles.

My catch with my blogging adventure is that I can't use ANY products or styling tools. That means absolutely NO hairspray, NO hair dye or highlights, NO teasing, and absolutely NO blow dryers or straightening irons. Gasp!

It sounds ridiculous, right? It is. In fact, I'm a little over 2 months into my journey and I've already come up with some pretty cool hairstyles. I have a whole section of my blog, called The Hair Style Guide, which showcases everything from Bantu knots, to twists, to cool updo's.

Today I'm going to show you 10 ways to wear a braid. Are you ready for it? Count 'em. It's 10.
  1. Three by three
  2. Halo braid
  3. Braided side topsy tail
  4. Headband braid
  5. Braided chignon
  6. Double plait to a messy bun
  7. French braid a la bun
  8. Fishtail
  9. Boho braid
  10. Twist Braid
Some are easy, and some are a bit complicated. Luckily for you, if you click each link above, it will take you to my page so you can learn how to do those braided hairstyles.

Which braid are you just dying to try?? Some are cool... some are just not my style... but rock it, sister, if it's your thing!

Don't forget to check out all my fun hair happenings over at Bye Bye Beehive. I'd love to get to know you if you have a moment (or a couple hours) to wander around!!

(Psst... I also blog at Simply Aunie... go check me out!)

I love this!! I'm growing my hair out right now but it's always been difficult to braid my own hair :)

Hey SITSta! I love them all! But how on earth do you do it yourself? I have a time with the straight iron and here they have braided their own hair! Maybe I'm not cordinated enough. lol

These are so fun! My hair is long, but quite layered, so I haven't really tried any braids in a while. That braided chignon is AMAZING!!
